A must see when in Syracusa. Very interesting and signs throughout the area describing the site written in English as well as Italian. Reasonably priced and ample street parking.

We took a bunch of our kids to attend the Greek Theater Festival at Siracusa‘s famous Greek amphitheater, which dates from the 400BC era. When it was built, it boasted one of the largest cavea anywhere, accomodating nearly 15000 spectators. Today it is still used...More

You have to imagine what it looks like. When we visited, the amphitheatre was set up for a concert so all the ancient stone was covered in wooded seating. Very disappointing.

This Ancient Greek theatre is absolutely stunning and a must see. It’s so well preserved and is incredibly huge. You don’t appreciate the sheer scale of this theatre until you’re standing in it! Stunning views and caves nearby are worth a visit too and you...More

There's no doubt about it, these Greek ruins are an incredible way to see into the history of the city. However, there was no information boards or proper maps about what you were looking at, and without pre-reading, it didn't put the stunning landscape into...More

It's essential to visit the archaeological park in Siracusa. The well-preserved and maintained remnants of one of the largest Greek theatres, the Roman amphitheatre, and the mines are an astonishing reminder of the significance of this city within a broad European context. The views from...More
